Workshop: Secret Principles of a Special Cup of Coffee

The coffee experts brewing at X Coffee on the third floor will present an exclusive workshop sharing the secret to enjoying your coffee hundreds times more at home.  Making a cup of coffee is a science: there could be hundreds of different aromas depending on the region the beans come from, how they are roasted, how it’s brewed, and ultimately the combination of these factors. Even the water quality and its temperature can change the aroma!  Yes, it's surprisingly that nuanced!  But don’t worry, it is not difficult at all to make a great cup of coffee.  Once you have the basic knowledge, try a couple of times to get the hang of it and experiment more - this makes a huge difference.  What is even more lovely is that the perfect pour-over could be a nice ritual to wake yourself up, refresh or relax even when your mind is a little fuzzy.
This workshop consists of three sessions: the first is to learn the character of beans from different regions, the second is to experience different brewing methods, and the last is about roasting. You can either take just one or all three sessions according to your interests.
The more you get to know about coffee, the more you enjoy it, just as with wine! 

* Note: All classes come with one break in the middle and Q&A session at the end of the day
